There are 2 veteranʻs cemeteries in Hilo! I have been in touch with the Office of Veteranʻs Affairs in Hilo and hopefully they will be able to tell me which cemetery and grave number... going to Hilo next Wednesday... Iʻm very glad I responded to this request. Iʻm an Army wife and believe it is very important to honor our veterans and preserve their memory... so I will do my best to find him...

Hi! Lorren is the first husband of my 2nd great Aunt and I was wondering if you could please transfer his memorial over to me. Thank you!

Just looked at the record on his page... it says Hawaiʻi Veteranʻs Cemetery in Hilo... that is on Hawaiʻi Island. I live on Oʻahu and photograph at the veteranʻs cemetery there. But, I will be in Hilo in a few weeks and will see what I can find...

|Dr. Mike||RE: Inverness Cemetery|
As you know by now, I did in fact locate the grave you requested and posted it. Because of the nature of the request, several people got involved with this and there were several foot searches by several different persons. I've updated the Inverness City's records and also have an additional veteran's grave site photo that lies adjacent to Mr. Cato. If you would like to create a memorial for him, please let me know. Sorry to have taken so long to track down this marker, sometimes these things take time and effort. From all those involved, we hope this helps your research/catalog/family records and on behalf of the people involved, we thank young Mr. Cato for his sacrifice... we hope he is at least resting in peace in paradise.

Hi Shane, I must say that I am so very impressed with the fantastic effort you are putting in! I try to do what little I can to clean up around a veteran's grave and their marker, take and post as many photos here as I can. I came across SSgt Roberson's marker yesterday and was humbled to be in the presence of a gentleman that went in on the first wave of D-Day and gave all he had. I posted the picture I took to your memorial. Thank you so very much for what you are doing!

Shane here is the website. http://www.uboat.net/allies/merchants/crews/search.html I checked the 1st 4 of 5 Merchant Marines and did not find a memorial for them any where so I am just doing the Army Navy for now. Let me know your thoughts on the other names.

As of today I've completed the listing of all the soldier's and sailor's records I could find for the State of Maryland. Now to move on to another state.... :-)
Just wanted to let you know and also let you know how much I've appreciated all that you've helped me with. :-)

|Wendy Park||Earl O. Hall|
Earl Orine Hall (Memorial # 91300887) is my father's uncle. His tombstone has the wrong dates. His birthday was June 16, 1918 (source WPA birth index and enlistment papers) and his death date was Aug 26, 1944. I'm not sure why the BIRLS death file lists the death date which is found on his tombstone, but the combat log for his battalion describes the event of his death in the entry for Aug 26, 1944.
Thank you for creating this memorial.

|Ann Z||RE: Gheardi and parris|
Alfonse Gherardi is not in Hibbing's records as being buried there. Even just putting in the surname he is not listed. And I looked under the spelling you have above. There are other Gherardis but none with a death date even close to '44.

MURRAY, Robert James, Aviation Radioman 2c, USNR. Wife, Mrs. Anna June Murray, 719 River St., Scranton.
I'd say Murray. This came from another site that has the casualty listings. The casualty lists are all of a sudden not coming up.
Also when I set the search for Robert J Murphy at Ancestry, I get no files for this person.

I've been in Mexico for 3 weeks and will be returning tomorrow until mid-August (was home for a funeral). Please hold off on other transfers until I get back - my email is going to be bad enough as it is. Not sure exactly what you want me to do with them, but I can tell you I won't be working on them while I'm away. Will contact you as soon as I return stateside.

Hi Shane this was part of the 392nd web site.
Knettel rarely talked about the incident, but did tell his son Michael that the air was colder than normal that day and they were flying at a higher altitude than usual. He heard a tremendous noise and then he and Brzostowski just fell from the plane. As his chute deployed, the plane exploded and debris showered down. His parachute was damaged, causing him to descend too fast. He was severely injured; a metal plate had to be placed in his head and a rod in his leg. These injuries pained him until his death at age 47.

No the spelling is exactly like you have it.
One of their records uses a space between Mc and I but that shouldn't make a difference at ABM.
